Aaron Rodgers threw for 308 yards and a pair of touchdowns as Green Bay rallied from an early 13-point deficit to down Carolina, 30-23.

Rodgers finished 19-of-30, with TD strikes to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson for the Packers (2-0), while Mason Crosby connected on three field goals and John Kuhn added a rushing score for the defending champions.

Charles Woodson posted a pair of key picks for Green Bay.

Cam Newton passed for 432 yards and one score, but was intercepted three times for the Panthers (0-2), who got 100-yard receiving performances from Steve Smith and Jonathan Stewart in defeat.

Newton added a team-best 53 yards on the ground plus a touchdown.
